The ‘Make’ procedure for indigenous design, development and manufacture of defence equipment/ weapon systems, was simplified in 2016 and promulgated as Chapter–III of DPP-2016. Subsequently, a simplified procedure for sub-category ‘Make-II’ was notified in Feb 2016 with an objective of wider participation of Indian industry, impetus for MSME/start-ups sector, simplified implementation, and timely induction of equipment into the Indian Armed Forces.
With the emerging dynamism of private sector and with the aim of achieving substantive self-reliance in defence production/ manufacturing, it is imperative that OFB/DPSUs harness the potential of private sector by implementing Make-II procedure at their level for indigenously developing products. Therefore, a framework for implementation of Make-II at OFB/DPSUs lavel, was notified on 11th Feb 2019 and the same can be downloaded here.
The details of projects being taken up by OFB/DPSU under Make-II can be obtained from following links: -
